SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A characterful cottage set in a peaceful rural location a short walk from the riverside hamlet of Weir Quay.

Weir Quay is a delightful and much sought after hamlet on the east bank of the river Tamar. The Tamar Valley is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has been awarded World Heritage status. With its rolling hills, meandering rivers and ancient woodlands it is ideally suited to those who enjoy walking, riding and water sports. Weir Quay has a sailing and gig rowing club and the boatyard offers a slipway and mooring for both shallow and deep craft. The nearby village of Bere Alston offers a wide range of shopping facilities as well as a post office, doctors' surgery, chemist and highly rated primary school. It also provides road links to Tavistock and rail links to Plymouth.

This delightful mid-terrace two bedroom cottage was built, we understand, in the 1800s and, we are informed, with further accommodation added in the 1940s. The property is in very good order and has a wealth of original features, including exposed beams and original fireplace with bread oven now housing a multi-fuel woodburner. The accommodation comprises entrance porch, living room, kitchen/breakfast room, rear hall, cloakroom, two bedrooms and a shower room.

The gardens are a particular feature and have been landscaped to provide several areas for entertaining and enjoying the surroundings which can be lit by remote control in the evening. There is a local slate stone terrace, lawned areas and three useful outbuildings, all with mains power, including a summerhouse in the lower garden with views through the trees across the River Tamar Valley.
